    Awesome! About time someone's come up with a simple interface solution for the V1! I'm going to go find me the parts to build and see if the VOne app can be integrated with RR

    Happy happy day

    The process to create an ID and then request to join a forum is a pain.

    The hardware is a simple serial interface circuit. Look at http://www.kc8unj.com/radar/ and choose Software One. Since it can use serial, then a suitable plugin for Frodo and Road Runner can be made. The program he wrote looks very good, emulating the Valentine's display.

    Yes, it's explained on that link posted above (http://www.kc8unj.com/radar/). You can either build a custom V1 to Serial cable or plunk down $39 for a very nicely made TTL2USB box, and another $10 for a V1 to TTL2USB cable.

    I'm opting for the home-built serial cable, since flat Cat-3 is very easy to run through the car

    The only thing I'm stuck on is one component on the schematic that shows 5.1V value. Does anyone know what that symbol is for? RatShack has all the needed parts and they're easily accessible.

    EDIT: Nevermind.. found it... zener diode

    That's a Zener diode.

    I could be wrong..

    .. but now that the V1/PC interface issue is basically resolved via the cable, it should be [fairly] easy for a skilled programmer to develop an application that could display warnings as an overlay so you don't have to constantly run the radar detector application as a visible window, no?

    Does that make sense?

    Or can we get details of the serial data meaning?
